Need a Real Answer on Revoked or Suspended license...
I got a DUI in 2013 and my license was suspended. I'm working on doing all the requirements asked of me. My boss at work told me 2 things, I can get a permit just to drive to and from work. #2. Is it true that you can claim sovereign t citizen, and "not drive" but have right to travel without a license as long as your not traveling in a commercial vehicle or using the vehicle for commerce? Please tell me my rights here and I watched several YouTube videos where people got pulled over and used "right to travel," and the Supreme Court ruled in favor of this law. If true, Can you give me details on this law? The name of the law, and does it pertain to all States. Thank you.

Can I be denied reentry to the US for a 9 year old DUI?
I'm a permanent resident since 1993. I had a simple DUI misdemeanor in 2006. I applied for citizenship and passed the civics test in 2007 but I was denied citizenship because of the DUI. I remained a PR. My PR card expired and I renewed it in 2014 without any problems. Now I wish to travel outside the US but it will be my first time since before my DUI in 2006. My DUI record was expunged in 2007 so my record should be clean again. However I'm very afraid to leave the country if there's a chance they won't let me back in because of the DUI. Can they do that? Is it possible?
Yes you can be denied because of a 9 year old DUI but it is not likely.
